Saunia Ahmad, a clinical psychologist of Toronto Psychology Clinic, says while there are many types of Muslims out there, all with different needs when it comes to love, the concept of online dating for some may still be considered taboo.“Some Muslims are fine with it, while other more devout Muslims ask if this type of dating is OK or not,” she tells Global News.
“Some people are concerned about judgment or not being a good religious person.” And when you are single, or on apps, for some, it may feel like the last resort.
Fahmida Kamali, a 25-year-old from Toronto, says she has tried a majority of dating apps and sites (both for Muslims and not specifically for Muslims), and says it can sometimes be overwhelming.“I didn’t know a lot of Muslims and I don’t have a ton of Muslim friends,” she tells Global News.
